Adopt-a-Hole at Shelton Springs

Shelton Springs was built with the commitment that volunteer labor would be used to develop and maintain the course. The Adopt-a-Hole Program is intended to empower and enable the people that benefit from the course to take ownership of the course and give it the maintenance it needs. As a participant, you will adopt – take ownership of – a selected hole on the course. Your basic objective is to make your hole better than everyone else’s.

Eligibility:

Open to anyone, individuals or groups. In the event there is availability, more than one hole may be adopted. All participants are required to attend a one-hour orientation at the course before they get started to learn about what we can and can’t do.

To adopt a hole, please contact a Board Member or use the Contact Form.

Responsibility:

At a minimum, maintain and improve your selected hole at Shelton Springs. The minimum requirement is keeping your hole in good playable condition with at least two trimmings during the growing season (May – September) and two fairway clearings/rakings during the winter season (November March).

The adoption period is One Year, following the Calendar Year.

Examples of Improvements & Maintenance:

  • Pickup garbage.

  • String trim or mow fairway.

  • Clear dead limbs/debris off of fairway.

  • Rake and remove fir cones.

  • Create trails through adjacent fairways and rough.

  • Spread beauty bark around the green and trails.

  • Spread 3/4" minus crushed rock around teepads.

  • Landscaping.

  • Plant flowers or trees.

  • Improve drainages and add/maintain waterbars.

  • Line the fairways and trails with downed trees/limbs or rocks.

  • Make artistic improvements and provide added character.

Benefits:

Bragging rights, obviously. In addition, we will install an adopt-a-hole sign with your name on it at the red teepad of the hole so everyone knows who to high-five and say thanks to!
